    Hi all,

    I am looking for references for luthiers local to me that are best qualified to do repairs, upgrades, and setups on my instruments. I am in Long Beach, which is in the greater Los Angeles area.

    Any advice is appreciated!!

    A name that comes vaguely to mind is John Carruthers. IIRC, he has, or had, a shop in Venice or somewhere around there, but I could well be wrong.
